Brines Cottage lies close to the centre of the popular village of Oborne which is conveniently placed just a few miles to the north of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne surrounded by some glorious rolling countryside. The village benefits from a church, village hall and popular The Grange Country Hotel is a particularly attractive one from which there are numerous walks in all directions over the local countryside while at the same time being within short motoring distance of both Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area while the region is well known for its schools which include the Sherborne Schools, the Bruton Schools, Millfield and St Antony's Leweston. Transport links are good with a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton.

The plot size and gardens are a real salient feature of the property with the majority of the garden being laid to the front and side of Brines Cottage. To the front of the property there is an area of gravelled parking with a pedestrian pathway leading to the front of the cottage. A large proportion of the garden is laid to lawn with a variety of mature shrub and floral borders, ornamental pond, greenhouse, stone garden workshop and a former privy providing further garden storage.
